Going to Brooklyn College was the best decision I ever made. I have made everlasting friendships and created strong bonds with the faculty here. They really want to see you succeed and go out of their way to make sure you get what you need! The only reason why I wouldn't give it a full 5 stars is because the food on campus sucks! Luckily there are many food places around the campus that offer student discounts for Brooklyn College students. The campus is beautiful, the people are friendly, and the faculty are extremely welcoming. Transferring here has changed my life and I am grateful for Brooklyn College for being so welcoming.

I got accepted through Brooklyn College last minute and jumped on the offer. As I am entering my second semester as a freshman, I do truly enjoy my experience so far. The school spirit is present on campus. During breaks, you can see student government giving away plenty of free items for nearby students. You also can find the school mascot on the quad with these students.There are many clubs that occur and many events such as movie night on the quad and puppy therapy.The campus is truly beautiful in all seasons. Classes are interesting and professors seem to be approachable! I highly recommend as a cheap college option.
CUNY is underfunded so it makes everything harder. The campus is beginning to fall apart and Cuomo is syphoning all of our money. Many professors do not really care but if you are persistent you will do well. It takes a large effort to create your own community on campus but when you do, it will be just as you create it. There is a lot of room to be successful here because not many students get involved or care too much about academics. There is someone from almost every country that goes here!
